Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and shape, issues an update on the status of operations in their Tokyo headquarters following a devastating 8.9 magnitude earthquake.

The earthquake has affected the entire nation of Japan, however the center of the disaster was in the northeastern coastal area of the country, about 3 hours from Tokyo.

“Our executive management here in the United States has been in constant communication with other executives from Konica Minolta in Tokyo obtaining the latest updates possible. At this time there have been no reports of major injuries involving Konica Minolta employees. Our Tokyo offices and facilities have not suffered any major damage. Additionally there has been no reported damage to any of the production plants in Japan”, said Lou Carulli Marketing Manager for Konica Minolta Sensing America’s. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families during this very difficult time”.

KMSA will continue to work with their Japanese headquarters to minimize any impact on global operations as the country begins the recovery process.
